About Us

The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District (GLACVCD) is a non-enterprise, independent, special district, enabled and empowered to act as a public health agency as a result of legislation incorporated in the California State Health and Safety Code.

GLACVCD is one of five mosquito and vector control districts in Los Angeles County. The District serves approximately 6 million residents in a 1,330 square mile area, making GLACVCD the largest vector control district in Los Angeles County. Funding is supported by ad valorem property and special assessment taxes. For fiscal year 2013-2014, the minimum assessment rate is $7.74 per parcel. Parcels within the black fly control assessment zone are charged an additional $0.30 for that service.
